Expose of The Nudist Racket.
This is a "road show" from 1938. There is no director credited. For a few years in the late thirties, "nudist colony" movies were quite popular on the "sexploitation" circuit. Notice that the girls featured with bare breasts are quite attractive, more so than average people who might be in the colony. These are probably models and aspiring actresses brought in for the movie only. As one producer of the time put it, "If you are going to make a nudist colony movie, bring your own nudists" Notice the title. Nudism is a "racket." an indication of the middle class morality which is imposed on all these movies. Also note how they make fun of the fat woman. This is another aspect of these films. See, ":How to Undress in Front of Your Husband." elsewhere in the archives

great time capsule
Very interesting piece of historical footage. Thanks for posting it. Didn't know they made short "news of the world" type pseudo newsreels like this. And with comedic narration. I know nudist colony footage was turned into countless exploitation feature films from the early '30s to the 60s -- but never saw any.
I've been posting clips from underground fetish films of the 30s to 70s as well. Search for "fetish stag film" and Bettie Page for this series.
